    This is now my favorite catapult <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_cheers.png" alt="cheers" longdesc="28"><br>Its a natural oak with an Iroko end cap which in a certain angle looks like a scary face.<br>It has a 11cm fork length and 25mm fork tips.<br>Just finished the last coat of varnish yesterday and fitted the bands today.<br>Some photos are only with linseed oil and some with the finished result.<br>I hope you like it!
